Every year, families travel from near and far to Jacksonville, FL, for the holidays. Whether they’re visiting family or simply taking a vacation, this city is always buzzing with holiday spirit and festivities. Even Santa can be spotted around town, making appearances and taking notes of every good girl and good boy’s wish list. But where exactly can you find him this year? Well, it’s time to buckle up in a rental from Carl’s Van Rentals and track that jolly old man around town!

Where to Spot Santa in Jacksonville

Celestial Farms

Santa will be parking himself at Celestial Farms on Friday, December 16, 2022, from 9 AM – 4 PM. Take advantage of this sighting and enjoy some last-minute gift shopping, food trucks, local vendors, and more. A suggested $5 donation for each family member over the age of five will earn you entry and a bag of feed to feed the animals. That sounds like fun!

The Mini Bar

Santa’s weekend of fun continues at The Mini Bar, where you can have donuts with him! The sighting opportunity includes a photo op and an 8-pack of donuts. The event runs Saturday, December 17, 2022, from 9 AM – 12 PM. Tickets tend to sell out quickly, so you’ll want to snag them before they’re gone. 

Sensory Towne

Who doesn’t love breakfast with Santa? Because we sure do! And this year, you and your little ones can enjoy his company, too, along with a yummy breakfast. On Sunday, December 18, 2022, go have breakfast with Santa from 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM at Sensory Towne. There will also be tons of games, crafts, playtime, and photo opportunities. However, spots are limited, so you’ll want to get your tickets early.
